phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to control MySQL databases through a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, set up, edit and delete cells, rows and tables or control users with various levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks can be carried out from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the Internet hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import a whole database, which is a very useful function if you'd like to migrate a web site from one hosting provider to another. A number of different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you need to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application for instance Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every single web hosting which we provide and it is accessible from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of each database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you will be logged into the app instantly in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the whole or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to go through the CP, you'll also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last feature is handy if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database which you create inside your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open in your Internet browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not need to enter the database username or password. If you want to grant access to another person such as a web developer, for instance, you could give them the database login information and they'll be able to log in from a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
